Wow pretty horrific.
Pacifica is 15 miles south of San Francisco.

SFCN - Pregnant Pacifica woman killed by family pit bull

Neighbors try to make sense of the horrific mauling death of a pregnant Pacifica woman.

The man learned a very difficult lesson. The dog wiped out his family.

San Francisco passed a law in 2005 that pit bulls owned by city residents must be spayed or neutered...and then shot between the eyes

One thing since I started reading about pit bulls killing people and other animals on ARFCOM, probably >10 years, I was willing to give them a benefit of a doubt, but that all ended with this story.

I feel for the man.

You don't hear of Aussies doing that.  Or beagles, or GSDs, or GSPs, or setters, or labs, or poodles, or asthma hound chihuahuas, or even chows, which have an aggressive

reputation.  Not dobermans, not dalmations, not rottweilers, not cocker spaniels, not bichon frisees, not Russian Wolfhounds, nor catahoulas, or any other kind, really.



Only Pit Bulls.  





You APBT apologists can just walk away quietly now.   Everybody knows damned well that when someone of any age is seriously mauled by a dog, they know exactly

what kind of dog it's going to be.   Exceptions are dramatically rare.





I won't have a pit.  I won't trust one.   If one approaches me,  my CCW becomes an OCW.  I'll blow one away if it shows the tiniest hint of aggression toward me.  I need

little or no provocation to help make the breed a rare one...or an extinct one.





I've completely given up on buying into the "most are good,  it's just a few bad ones you hear about" line of reasoning.  They're ALL good dogs until that screw in their brains

works loose and falls out.   Some never will do that,  but as there's NO way to predict it,  I won't even entertain the idea of giving them a chance.





I'm done pretending.   American Pit Bull Terriers are the only human killing breed of dog known in North America.   I have no objections to any action taken against them.





A pit bull is the only dog I ever actually had to face down.   It made an aggressive move toward me, and I turned to run...but changed my mind as I know that they have an

instinct to chase running prey.   Instead, I grabbed the screwdriver and knife I had with me, in each hand, and advanced toward the dog yelling GO HOME in the loudest voice

I can dredge up, which is impressively loud.   The dog stuck its tail betweeen its legs and ran away very fast.



I can not presume that would happen twice.





A pit running toward me is grounds to shoot on sight.

Yep.
No tolerance for this stupidity.
I would even propose a law in which pit bull owners are free to keep them-as long as they are absolutely subject to life in prison without parole should their darling ever maim someone not committing a burglary or assault..

Your cute little  dog would never hurt anyone?
Good, then you have nothing to worry about!

Pacifica dog mauling…what really happened?

According to residents of the Napora neighborhood, the dog did not maul Darla Napora, “just found out that the woman fell off a ladder and hit her head...husband came home found the dog standing over her...he put the dog out side....it got loose and cops shot the dog...thinking that it had mauled the lady. The dog had blood on it's body because he was trying to nudge her to make her move...

Holy shit, the  APBT apologists are out in droves now!  Somebody close the damned gate before any more get out!





Facts are facts.    If you read an article (or hear about it by any news source) that describes a dog attacking a human being,

and not just an accidental bite inflicted while separating dogs fighting or attacking other animals,  but a real ATTACK, one that

is sustained for several bites and inflicts serious to fatal injuries, you KNOW before you hear it what breed they're talking about.



Of all the AKC registered breeds, it's none of these except the ones in large text:






Nope, nobody expects the others to be at fault, 99 percent of the time.  And 99 percent of the time, they're NOT.





We all know which breed is most likely to have a loose screw between the ears.  And you just don't know which dogs will eventually

have that screw fall out.





Yeah, I'm damned serious.   An off-leash pit heading in my general direction is grounds to clear the holster.   I carry in condition one, so all

that I have to do next is aim and fire if I feel threatened.    Any display of aggression or hunting behavior on the part of that dog toward me

or any person in my presence is adequate grounds to pull the trigger.   You'd better believe me.   I'm not fooling here.



Not too long ago, my mother was taking a morning walk, and two off-leash pits showed unfriendly interest in her.  They kept trying to get

behind her.   She kept turning to face them and yelling at them.    Eventually they moved off.     If they'd been just a LITTLE more aggressive,

I might have inherited at that time.  



Don't try to defend your four-legged psychopathic terrorist time bombs to me.  I will have none of it.



Any other dog,  I like them all.  But I don't and won't trust a pit.  Their history speaks for itself.  There is no other breed on that list that has

earned any reputation as a man killer.

Bull. 5 seconds of searching found this:

There is an estimated population of 55 millions dogs in the United States. There are approximately 20 human deaths per year due to a dog attack.

Therefore, an infinitesimal percent (.0000004%) of the dog population is involved in a fatal attack.
Fatal Dog Attacks 1994- 99
When we list the numbers of dogs involved in each fatality it should be noted that in many of these cases there was only one Alpha dog that was responsible for the fatal injury. Fatal attacks involving multple dogs are fraught with a range of potentially serious miscalculations and errors. In many cases it becomes difficult to determine the level of participation of an individual dog or breed in a multiple dog attack.

You really posted all that and all you did was bold a breed name and you've proved your point.





Give me a break.





Tell me the population of pit bull type dogs and then tell me the number of attacks attributed to pit bull type dogs.  Doing so will have proven once and for all if the breeds themselves are the problem.  You will then have put this argument to bed forever.





Or you could just go back to "Media tells me they're all bad!!" or "Cause I said so!" and most of all "blah blah blah apologist blah blah"

Facts are facts.    If you read an article (or hear about it by any news source) that describes a dog attacking a human being,


and not just an accidental bite inflicted while separating dogs fighting or attacking other animals,  but a real ATTACK, one that


is sustained for several bites and inflicts serious to fatal injuries, you KNOW before you hear it what breed they're talking about.





Of all the AKC registered breeds, it's none of these except the ones in large text:

Nope, nobody expects the others to be at fault, 99 percent of the time.  And 99 percent of the time, they're NOT.
We all know which breed is most likely to have a loose screw between the ears.  And you just don't know which dogs will eventually


have that screw fall out.
Yeah, I'm damned serious.   An off-leash pit heading in my general direction is grounds to clear the holster.   I carry in condition one, so all


that I have to do next is aim and fire if I feel threatened.    Any display of aggression or hunting behavior on the part of that dog toward me


or any person in my presence is adequate grounds to pull the trigger.   You'd better believe me.   I'm not fooling here.





Not too long ago, my mother was taking a morning walk, and two off-leash pits showed unfriendly interest in her.  They kept trying to get


behind her.   She kept turning to face them and yelling at them.    Eventually they moved off.     If they'd been just a LITTLE more aggressive,


I might have inherited at that time.  





Don't try to defend your four-legged psychopathic terrorist time bombs to me.  I will have none of it.





Any other dog,  I like them all.  But I don't and won't trust a pit.  Their history speaks for itself.  There is no other breed on that list that has


earned any reputation as a man killer.

Actually, I would probably think about it... especially if I had my kids with me. But that applies for pretty much any large breed dog.

Can we start a Brady Campaign against Dog Violence and seek to have Semi-Autonomous Assault Dogs banned if they posses one or more evil features?

I don't know if I would start blasting away immediately, but I think I would get the gun out of the holster and get on target just in case it didn't stop...

My friends is the chief of one of the local animal control offices. The three dogs he gets called on most are pits, labs, and German shepherds. I'll never own either three breeds.



ETA: I'm glad they are fucking illegal in my city. If I see one on my block I call the fucking cops with one hand and place my firing hand on my pistol while getting between the mongrel and my family. Fuck pits. They should all be destroyed.

Pitbull? Nah.  I'll just stick with my beloved boxers.  Have you ever seen what a pitbull(s) can do to a pot bellied pig?  It took awhile for animal shelters to finally realize that's exactly why some poeple were 'adopting' pigs.  These scumbag dog fighters love to train their pits with them.

Quoted:



"They are not barking dogs. They seemed friendly," Carlson said of the two pit bulls owned by the Naporas. "I have a pit also, and he's an absolute angel.




They always are, right up until they kill someone.


Yup. Like the farmer said when his cow died...."Gee, he never did that before".
